Ambon-Ambon Falls is definitely a sight to behold located in Pangil, Laguna. The height of the drop is 5 meters high. The strong gustiness is brought about by the drop of the water to another boulder of rock, causing showers all over the small cove of large stones. So no matter where you go, once you are inside the cove, the water will reach you.

This eco-park features the infamous Ambon-Ambon Falls, and includes activities such as Trekking, River Tubing, and Crablet Catching.

In the Philippines there's always this rainy season starting from June/July up to some of the 'ber months,.

When thinking of waterfalls to visit on a day tour from Manila, the province of Laguna will surely make the cut. This without a doubt since there are lots of waterfalls in the province that are all within reach from the Metropolis. Pagsanjan Falls in Cavinti will always come to mind since it is one of the tourist spots that were developed and marketed for tourists ahead of the others. It was highlighted to us in our formative years in school as I remember.
